TRIVIA EP. 17 -EARTH DAY SPECIAL

Nazareth Guild Trivia Video Starring – Libby, Zach, and Nick Frazier

Earth Day Trivia was brought to you by the Frazier’s. Libby (4th grade) and her brother Zach (6th grade) both attend Cataldo Catholic School, and their older brother Nick (11th grade) attends Gonzaga Preparatory. Thank you, Frazier Family, for your commitment to educating all five kids in our Eastern Washington Catholic schools!

In their video, the kids explained the process of precipitation (rain) once it falls to the ground. Zach and Libby were on their way to drink water from a creek that was just filled by the sudden falling rain. Nick encouraged them to hurry because the water would shortly evaporate from the river back up to the clouds.

Their trivia question asked what the cycle is called: the answer was The Water Cycle!

Congratulations to our three winners below.

TRIVIA EP. 16 – THE ROSARY

Nazareth Guild Trivia Video – Starring Nolan from St. Mary Catholic School

Big shout out to Nolan for his trivia video on Tuesday. He is a third-grader at St. Mary Catholic school in Spokane Valley, and he has a big and beautiful rosary cross hanging on his bedroom wall.

Nolan explained the month of October is designated as the Rosary month. He also informed his viewers the month of May is held special for Mother Mary. His trivia question had to do with praying the Hail Mary during the entire rosary.

We know all you Catholic school kids have been keeping up with your schoolwork during this time in quarantine. Big shout out to our Catholic schools for keeping the learning going while you are home. Good thing you have been staying active with schoolwork because math skills were needed to help solve today’s question. THANK YOU, CATHOLIC SCHOOLS!!

Now, back to our trivia question. How many Hail Mary’s do you pray in the rosary?

When we first pray the rosary, we start at the Cross and say the Apostle’s Creed. Move on to the first big bead and say the Our Father. Then there are three beads. Those beads are for saying Hail Mary (three times for three beads). At this point, we start going through each Mystery (or Decade). There are five Decades, and each decade has ten beads in which we pray the Hail Mary.

Now, let’s do some simple math!

3 (# of beads to start) + 10 (# of beads in each decade) x 5 (# of decades in the rosary) = 53

You had to use PEMDAS to solve the above equation. 😊

Congratulations to our three winners below.

TRIVIA EP. 15 – SODOM AND GOMORRAH

Nazareth Guild Trivia Video – Starring The Balof’s

Manic Monday with the Balof Siblings from Walla Walla. Mary Elizabeth is a Junior at DeSales Catholic High School and her brother is in 8th grade at Assumption Catholic school. What a dynamic duo!

They both enjoy reading the bible and have been making sure to take the proper precautions while sharing the word of the Lord. We are glad to see no germs were spread in making this trivia video!

Their trivia question was based on Genesis 19, which tells the story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Lot, Abraham’s nephew, lived in Sodom with his family. Two angels came into town and Lot invited them to stay with his family. The angels made sure Lot, his wife, and his two daughters left before God destroyed the city. As they fled, the angels warned them, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you, and do not stay anywhere in the valley; escape to the mountains, or you will be swept away” (Genesis 19).

The question in yesterday’s trivia asked what happened to Lot’s wife when she ran and turned to look behind? The correct answer was she turned into a pillar of salt.

Congratulations to our three winners below.

TRIVIA EP. 14 – IRISH CROSS

Nazareth Guild Trivia Video – Starring Clare

Fri-YAY’s trivia video was brought to you by Clare, a first-grader at St. Mary Catholic school. Clare will be receiving a $25 gift card to O’Doherty’s Irish Grille.

And speaking of Irish – Clare’s trivia question had to do about a cross used in Ireland. This cross has a ring (or nimbus) surrounding the intersection of the cross. A popular Christian theory is that the ring is a halo, and the cross represents the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us.

Clare’s trivia proposed the question: What is the name of this type of cross? (the correct answer is a Celtic Cross).

Congratulations to our three winners below.

TRIVIA: EP. 13 – WALLA WALLA HELPS THEIR COMMUNITY

Nazareth Guild Trivia Video – Starring Eric Rhode

Thursday’s Trivia is brought to you from Walla Walla. Eric Rhode is a Jr High and High school teacher at Assumption and DeSales Catholic schools (aka Walla Walla Catholic Schools). Mr. Rhode is a Jack of all trades, so to speak. He teaches several different classes at WWCS; Journalism, Theatre Arts, and Computer Science – PHEW, he is a busy man.

DeSales has three 3D printers that students get to use. Mr. Rhode explained about how the printer works. Plans are designed from a program on the computer. Once the program is loaded, it gets sent directly to the 3D printer. A spool of plastic filament is placed into an extractor. The extractor is hot and melts the plastic, which falls onto the template that is on the base.

As we all know, all schools have been closed because of the Shelter in Place from COVID 19. However, the schools in Walla Walla are helping their community by using the 3D printer. They are making plastic straps. These plastic straps were designed by a boy scout from the East Coast. His idea was to help medical workers by eliminating the pain caused by the elastic straps from wearing a protective mask all day. Instead of wearing the elastic straps behind your ears, the plastic piece fits like a hat behind the head, and the elastic straps clip onto the plastic part, helping to keep the mask secure.

Two DeSales students in Mr. Rhode’s computer science class have been taking turns helping to produce the plastic straps. They will be donating the finished pieces to St. Mary Medical Center and Dayton General Hospital next week.

Truly serving others in times of need! Thank you, Mr. Rhode, and WWCS for taking action to help those who are helping others during this medical crisis. You are a BLESSING!

Thursday’s trivia question proposed by Mr. Rhode was:
What are the two most popular types of plastic filament that is used in 3D printers today?

Congratulations to our three winners below.

TRIVIA: EP. 12 – TOILET PAPER CHALLENGE

Nazareth Guild Trivia Video – Starring Grace from St. Mary Catholic School

Wacky Wednesday’s Trivia was brought to you for the first time by one of our Catholic school students. Grace is an 8th-grade student at St. Mary.

In yesterday’s trivia video, Grace found some humor in the toilet paper shortage we have all faced during the COVID 19 epidemic. Her video is a great reminder to not take things so seriously during this time. Laughter is essential to help us get through these days of feeling isolated from our friends, family, and community.

Grace’s trivia question was, how many toilet paper rolls can she fit on her hair? Her ponytail measures around 1ft 7inches, and each toilet paper roll measures about 4 inches. What was the correct answer?

For those of you who answered FOUR, your name was entered to be randomly selected to win a $10.00 Amazon gift card.

Thank you, Grace, for your video! Because your video was selected, you will receive a $25.00 gift card to be used at O’Doherty’s Irish Grille (sometime soon when businesses can open their doors again).

Congratulations to our three winners below.

Nazareth Guild Trivia Video – Starring JoAnn Gogl

Tuesday’s Trivia was brought to you all the way from Walla Walla. JoAnn Gogl is a K-6 music teacher & the 6-8 religion teacher at Assumption Catholic school.

In yesterday’s trivia video, Mrs. Gogl talked about how Holy Week and Easter is the most important time during the Catholic liturgical year. She talked about the Easter vigil being a part of the Sacred Triduum, which is considered to be the last three days of Holy Week. In addition, during the Easter Vigil the congregation chants a beautiful Easter hymn. The hymn references events from the Old Testament that actually prefigures events that are fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament.

Mrs. Gogl posed two trivia questions:

  1. What is the Latin name for the Easter hymn that is chanted?

The “Exsultet” or “Praeconium Paschale”

  1. What are the names for the three days that follow the end of Holy Week?

Holy (or Maundy) Thursday; also called Mass of the Lord’s Supper (USCCB)

Good Friday, also called Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion (USCCB)

Holy Saturday; also called Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord (USCCB)

TRIVIA: EP. 9 – Holy Week

Nazareth Guild Trivia Video – Starring Madeline Giancola

Thursday’s Trivia was brought to you all the way from Pasco. Madeline Giancola has been teaching in Catholic school since she graduated from Creighton University. She is currently the second-grade teacher at St. Patrick Catholic school.

In yesterday’s trivia video, Mrs. Giancola talked about Holy Week and how it holds such a special meaning for Catholics. Starting with Palm Sunday, we remember how Jesus triumphantly entered Jerusalem. Throughout the week, Catholics remember events that led up to his crucifixion and later, his Resurrection.

The Wednesday during Holy Week, between Palm Sunday and Good Friday, has a special name. Mrs. Giancola asked two questions about this day:

What is this special name? (Spy Wednesday)

Who is the spy? (Judas, who betrayed Jesus)

Great job, Catholic school students! Almost all of the entries were correct, our Catholic schools are doing a GREAT JOB. WHOOO HOOO – Thank you for playing, please know Nazareth Guild is praying for you, your family, and your school community.

Make sure to check out the current video that is posted…we are running a contest until Monday, April 13.
